Way bigger

I got home and out of my pickup truck about 10:30 tonight. As I always do, I looked up.

A layer of low clouds, pale puffs, covered half of the sky. The other half seemed darker, the stars brighter, contrasted against the clouds. Casseopeia looked down from her chair, the Milky Way a gauze ribbon of starlight.

A perfect breeze rustled the trees, and I heard a voice, and it said:

"All of this is way bigger than you. Way bigger."
